    Nicely said the reality of wrinkles and old age and their envy to the younger ones though I think in reality cannot be taken as a routine or regular impression persists in old women who have seen the world in different circumstances and sufferings and also glad moments of life. The poem is beautiful. (Report) Reply

    Sensitive and well expressed. The repetition of the first line makes it hang together well. (Report) Reply

    Your pretty good at reading a woman's mind. Showing the envy and needing the compassion. Very high emotions at both ends Good write (Report) Reply

    Good poem.It is said that Women in general long for beauty
    but it's in their youth.Old women and envy! perhaps I'm not agreeing.
    May be you are true.

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
